The 55th Annual CMA Awards is underway in Music City and country music’s biggest stars, including CMA Awards host Luke Bryan, Old Dominion, Dierks Bentley, Chris Young and more are dressed to the nines for “Country Music’s Biggest Night.”
Ahead of the show, artists and special guests walked the red carpet as they made their way into Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena where thousands of fans were waiting in anticipation of the star-studded show.
Artists such as Carly Pearce and Gabby Barrett opted for jewel tones, while and Russell Dickerson opted for a classic black ensemble.
White seemed to be a trending color on the CMA Awards red carpet as Kelsea Ballerini, Ashley McBryde, and Maren Morris strutted their stuff in stunning white outfits. Lady A‘s Dave Haywood and his wife, Kelli, also wore coordinating white attire.
Some CMA Awards attendees were more daring with their red carpet looks, like Maddie & Tae, who sported coordinating green dresses, and Jimmie Allen, who matched his wife, Lexi, in hot pink.
